Ready to experience China? ERRC summer teachers teach for 2-6 weeks with openings ranging from teaching kindergarten students to PhD students.
Here’s why we go:
- To be a witness for Christ in China as a competent and caring teacher
- To inspire students with a broader perspective on the world and life
- To gain cross-cultural sensitivity through living and working in Beijing
- To develop a deeper understanding of China and the Chinese people
- To prepare for possible longer term ministry commitments to China
Many of our summer teaching openings can be done in combination with our Chinese Worldviews Today Seminar in Beijing.
To join an ERRC summer team, you should be:
- 18 or older
- Strong Christian
- In Good health
- Team player
Cost: $1300 + Visa fee + Travel insurance + international airfare (about $2600-$3300). Some teaching openings provide stipends that can help offset the cost.
Application & Preparation Process
Initial planning phase:
Even if you’re not ready to depart this year, we would still love to talk with you. Fill out a preliminary inquiry form. We will follow up with you by phone, to get to know you and to answer your questions.
October – March:
It’s time to apply! We will email you a complete application form. Fill it out, send your resume and application fee, and gather references. We’ll let you know right away if you’re accepted, and you can begin forming a sending team. If you don’t have a passport, you’ll want to apply for that now too.
April – May:
We will send you some reading materials and curriculum, as well as assist you in booking travel. We will also guide you through the visa application process, help you get insurance, and provide helpful packing lists.
ERRC hosts a short orientation in China. At the orientation, we give insights into Chinese culture, equip you to answer students’ questions, and give you time to form a bond with your teaching team.
